I was blessed to be in attendance of this wonderful tour opener at the Mother Ship in Hampton.
First off it is a rare FOB and second it is sadly only the second set...but what a second it was.
What makes this set oh so memorable and a psychedelic tour de force is the pre-drumz sequence. The word was out after the Compton Terrace shows that Help> Slip> Franklin's was back to stay, along with Phil going to a six string bass, and this combination; especially on this spring tour, would reign sonic fury onto the faithful.
This beloved trifecta was the launch pad for over two decades of some of the Dead's fiercest ensemble playing and for this particular performance the band delivers the goods big time. I recall quite clearly that night as they tuned up for the second set that the band was bathed in red. Phil and Jerry make it quite clear as they tuned, what was about to explode as Phil's thunderous playing and Help on the Way must of rocked the far reaches of the solar system that night.
He drops some of the most joyous and righteous bombs of that decade during the first nine minutes of this second set opener.
The tones Jerry gets out of Tiger too are incredible and down right nasty as well, and to top it off Brent was playing his new Yamaha GS-1, which I think elevated his presence in the band and to a new level too. Just listen to Slipknot! as he completely compliments and fully partakes in the orchestrated chaos driven by Jerry and Phil. Bob is no slouch either as he delivers a text book reading of Truckin' with the jam out of it being propelled into a Pig Pen tribute, that is hauntingly beautiful as it is intense out of the blue Jerry just drops into Smokestack, played at that 1970 quicker tempo.
The post space may be more down to Earth but is still quite enjoyable as they close out the night which a barn burning rendition of Satisfaction.
You have to download the set to enjoy the benefits of the 24/96kHZ resolution, which is much better than a standard CD or SACD but you will be well rewarded for it.
Thanks to Andrew F. and crew for making the extra effort to transform this great recordings once again.
